Bourjois Poudre De Riz De Java
Bourjois Poudre De Riz De Java
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A light touch, 20 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a little pot of powder that adds a subtle glow to the skin, whilst also reducing shine and smoothing away the appearance of any imperfections. It looks on the pink side in the pot and repeat applications take on a more coloured appearance on the skin, so it may not suit darker/tanned skin unless used very sparingly.

Application is via a finger or brush (not supplied) into the top of the pot but a shaker top with closure ensures only a small amount of powder is dispensed at a time so the risk of spillage is much reduced. The pot cries out for a little sponge applicator to be included, which would help in terms of light application but it is otherwise a good product to add a healthy glow as long as you are light in touch.

SuperFish Glue 150 ml
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good gel, nice scent, 20 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one of the more pleasantly scented gels I have used; it smells delicately fresh, woody tones and a hint of something like citrus. It is so nice I could see it being a popular cologne. The gel itself is good; a small amount rubbed between hands and applied to hair produces a natural style that holds through the day. Add a bit more for stronger hold albeit with a more obvious look. It's a 150ml tube, how long it lasts depends on use and style but it is a good gel that is worth trying out.


InterDesign Clarity Tumbler Cup for Bathroom Vanity Countertops - Clear/Brushed
InterDesign Clarity Tumbler Cup for Bathroom Vanity Countertops - Clear/Brushed
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Stable bathroom accessory, 19 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lightweight beaker with a brushed metal-style base and clear plastic top. It is reasonably stable when holding toothbrushes and toothpaste and could easily be used for cotton wool/buds or even a small floral arrangement. I'm not so sure about using it for mouth rinsing as I found the square top not the easiest for that purpose but it looks reasonably smart and the style of the base reduces the tendency for water to pool underneath, which is useful. It will look good displayed with other items from the range although the rrp seems high for a standalone choice.


Face Inc By Nails Inc, Bubble Burst Brightening Oxygenated Pod Mask
Face Inc By Nails Inc, Bubble Burst Brightening Oxygenated Pod Mask
Price: £5.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Hydrating serum, 19 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This serum provides a good level of skin hydration immediately upon application. It is a clear lotion that spreads easily across the skin and only one dab in the pot was sufficient to cover my entire face and neck, which left lots more in the pot to attend to hands, elbows and other areas of dry skin. However, the pot cannot be resealed, which meant the rest of the pot will potentially go to waste unless you reseal it in another container. So easily rectified by either providing a smaller amount or splitting the pot in two so that you only access half at a time. So although the serum is good at tackling areas of dry skin and boosting hydration for the day, it just feels very wasteful/inconvenient in its present format.


Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes, Peach and Willow Bark, 25-Count
Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes, Peach and Willow Bark, 25-Count
Price: £4.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Skin smoothing, 18 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found these very effective cleansing wipes, which left my face feeling clean and free of make-up, without dryness or any feeling of irritation. The pack has a very strong sticky plastic seal, which effectively ensures the remaining contents stay moist for future use. More strongly scented than I would like but I will use again, particularly because of the exfoliating effect which leaves skin feeling smoother.

Fish Original Aquafish Fishpaste Matt Putty 100ml
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Light putty, 18 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a light putty that allows you to subtly style hair so that it still looks natural whilst also being kept in place. It has a pleasant, light scent that is fresh and won't compete with anything else. It comes in a 100g tub that will last for ages.


GATINEAU Floracil Plus Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover 118 ml
GATINEAU Floracil Plus Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover 118 ml
Price: £18.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient remover, 18 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an effective remover of eye make-up and I found it removed mascara with ease, even waterproof ones that can sometimes be resistant, except when it rains... You need to shake the bottle before application so that the two fluids combine, add to a cotton pad and rest against the eye so that the remover can start to work before you gently rub away all traces of make-up. After rinsing, it was pleasing to find my towel didn't end up with a ghost print of eyes, which doesn't happen very often. Although a relatively small bottle (118ml) two small dabs to cotton takes care of both eyes, so the bottle will last several months even if used daily. I experienced no skin irritation or stinging and my skin was left feeling clean and cleansed.


Russell Hobbs 24530 2 Portion Deep Fill Sandwich Toaster, 760 W
Russell Hobbs 24530 2 Portion Deep Fill Sandwich Toaster, 760 W
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, tasty but thin sandwiches, 16 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This makes good toasted sandwiches although not what I would call deep-filled as you should place no more than a level dessertspoon of filling inside each toastie to avoid oozing. But a level dessertspoon of finely grated cheese sprinkled with diced red onion makes a great sandwich, even if it is nigh on impossible to close the clip or cut the resultant sandwiches in half.

I used home baked bread and the crust was too tough to allow the sandwich maker to close. Fortunately for my first couple of goes I went against the instructions and constructed on cold plates, so I was able to recut the bread and experiment. Soft crusts, or no crusts works best so the closing plates can seal the sandwiches and trim excess from the edges.

You are guided to mould the bread against the plates using a wooden spoon but there isn't much space created for the filling so don't expect really deep sandwiches by using this machine. The guide of 4-5 minutes cooking time was about right, even without pre-heating the plates and the sandwiches are easy to remove thanks to the non-stick coating plus butter-side out on the bread. There is no on/off switch so you need to use the switch at the wall but then this is a budget machine and that's no hardship. So, it makes good sandwiches, just not particularly deep ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flower Garden, 16 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although more cream than grey in colour, the image on the product page is otherwise a fairly accurate likeness to the item received. Given the size, it is much lighter than expected and is therefore mostly resin with only a small amount of stone used in the manufacture - that's a positive note given this needs to be hung on a wall or other structure although a little more weight would aid stability for hanging outside.

Mine is in the garden and hung against a fence so that it forms a focal point nestled between bamboo shoots and as a backdrop to a seating area. Screws are supplied but I chose to use longer ones for added security, a foible of mine when it comes to DIY. It looks good in situ and can be viewed from the sides as well as front so the 3-D effect can be admired.

A small leaflet in the box informs that the item can be placed outside but should be protected from harsh weather in the winter. I'll report back if anything untoward happens in other conditions, including how prone it may be to being knocked from its fixing on the fence.

In summary, it is an attractive item that lends itself to a garden environment, edges softened by foliage and perhaps hidden from obvious view so that it can be stumbled upon. It is well protected in polystyrene in its shipping box as well, which should virtually guarantee it will arrive in one piece.

Nexxus Emergencée Leave-In Crème for Damaged Hair, 150 ml
Price: £20.68

4.0 out of 5 stars High impact, 13 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a leave-in serum that you apply to either wet hair to protect it when styling or when dry to improve condition. Although there is a pump in the bottle, mine would not work so I had to manually open the bottle to access the product, which was slightly inconvenient but did mean I had more control over the amount used. It is very richly concentrated and I only needed a pea-sized amount to coat the ends and mid-lengths of my hair, which immediately felt less dry whilst still having a good deal of bounce and shine. I found I could apply this on successive days before the next shampoo to add more manageability; where normally I am on a downward curve my hair stayed looking nice. It is a good product and one that worked as a standalone from the rest of the range when I first tried it, so is worth considering even if you don't use the matching shampoo and conditioner.
